Challenges Implementing Zero Trust
Implementing Zero Trust in a multi-cloud environment presents unique challenges. Complexity arises from managing services, applications, and databases, each with distinct access controls. The dynamic nature of cloud resources, which can be quickly scaled up or down, complicates maintaining a static security posture, requiring resource-intensive continuous monitoring. Proper Identity and Access Management (IAM) is vital but challenging due to the sheer number of users and resources involved. Additionally, there is frequently a skills gap that exacerbates these issues; many organizations lack the specialized expertise needed to implement and sustain a Zero Trust model effectively.
